Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a Maytag Performa PAV 2300 Washing Machine. Recently, clothes are still wet after spinning in the delicate cycle. This is not an issue in the Regular cycle. For now, I'm re-spinning the delicates in Regular which is working but not a good long-term solution. Thanks!!

The belt is real easy to replace. Tip the washer back and yank the old belt off.
Loop the new one over the 2 small pulleys and then ease the belt over the large pulley.I have a Maytag Performa - themobilian_2154.jpg

What will cause the washing machine to not spin fast enough to spin the clothes dry or not spin the fabric softener out of the agitator cup?


If your towels are coming out the dryest it is probably a problem with it being off balance. Did you make sure that the clothes are even placed in the washer. If you have a bunch of heavy stuff on one side and light stuff on the other side it could cause the same problem.

My maytag performa pav 2300 is making a loud noise while its spinning. Sounds like metal on metal. Its working fine. Its just that noise. We just got a new motor yesterday. What could be the problem ?...


Hello
On this model washer the noise is most likely caused by a worn washer tub seal assembly. remove agitator (nut on the top under cap), spin basket and tub assembly. remove seal and install new one.

Maytag performa washer during spin cycle tub is making loud banging noise and continues even when clothes are evenly distributed


This sounds like the transmission is going. Better get another washing machine other than a Performa.

Sounds like the water pump is going out on it. The part runs about $80 and should only take about 45 minutes to install.

Excess water in clothes at end of spin cycle


SOUNDS LIKE THE MOTOR COUPLING TO ME.

Clothes wet after spin


The clothes are wet after spinning When the clothes are wet at the end of a cycle, check these:

Motor coupler
Spin cycle
Siphoning
Water-inlet valve
El Resorte de la trasmision en inges se llama MOTOR COUPLER

Si pincha aqui y pone correctamente su numero de modelo pede veer directamente los diagramas para instalar el motor coupler.

Si no enacuentra numero de modelo mire: help finding the model number on your appliance?






Aqui siguen en dettalle mas possibiles rasones por su problema (en ingles)

Motor coupler
To test the motor coupler, re-start the washer in its spin cycle. Let the machine run for a minute, and then open the lid and notice whether the tub is spinning:

  • If it's spinning when you lift the lid, the coupler is fine.


  • If it isn't spinning--and your machine was produced by Whirlpool®--you may have a broken coupler. Many Whirlpool-made washers use a small, relatively inexpensive device called a motor coupling. This plastic-and-rubber component is mounted to the shaft of the motor on one side, and to the transmission on the other. Over time, the coupler wears out and fails. When that happens, you need to replace it completely.


Spin cycle If the washer doesn't reach its proper spin speed, the clothes may be too wet at the end of a cycle. Check to be sure the load is properly balanced and run a spin cycle again. If the clothes are still wet, you may have a worn or loose belt (Maytag®), a worn clutch (GE®/Hotpoint®), or a worn motor pulley or tub bearing. Replace the applicable component.

Alternatively, there could be clothes caught between the inner and outer tubs. Read the "It spins but won't pump" section of the "It won't drain" section. Also, there could be other things that cause friction on the drive train. Seek the assistance of a qualified appliance repair technician.

Siphoning If the water that pumps from the machine goes right back into the machine after the spin cycle, it may be because your washer is siphoning the water from a laundry tub with a slow drain, back into the washer. Try to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is there something stuck in the drain?) Also, be sure the drain hose doesn't reach more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub. If it does, cut off the excess.

Water-inlet valve Water-inlet valves eventually fail. One problem that may develop with a water-inlet valve is that it can no longer completely shut off when the electricity is turned off to it. Then, the valve may leak and drip water into the clothes tub--you may notice that your washer has water in it when you haven't used it for a few days. To fix this, replace the valve.

Aconsejo tambien comprar el manual de servicio aqui

Aqui hay un ejemplo de ingranages for el motor coupler, se montan en el palito donde el motore enchufa con los otros ingranajes:

I HAVE A 6 YR. OLD MAYTAG PERFORMA PAV 2300 TOP LOADING WASHER. UNIT WORKS FINE EXCEPT FOR LOUD CLUNKING NOISE AFTER SPIN CYCLE. NOTE - ALL BRAKE COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN REPLACED.


It sounds like a spn down noise. I would check to see if the brake spring was changed when the brake and stator was. They had some problems with weak springs.
